If your New Year resolutions have stalled already, don’t worry – we won’t tell anyone!

Volunteer Cornwall

So, did you make a New Year Resolution for 2018? And if so, how is it going?
Many people choose to stop doing things in January – things like smoking, alcohol, sugar etc. And many people chose to start doing things – such as going to the gym, jogging, and yoga.
But for 2018, why not consider a third and perhaps the most satisfying type of resolution – doing something to help other people, and your wider community, by volunteering?
Research shows that volunteers receive a significant boost to self-esteem and happiness through helping others. There are thousands of volunteering opportunities in Cornwall, and most charities and community groups are always on the look-out for new recruits.
